The EMI Fluid Dynamics Committee sponsored a mini-symposium "Fluid Dynamics in Natural Hazards" for the EMI 2016 conference that took place in Nashville, TN, May 22-25, 2016. Following the success of this mini-symposium, we are planning a special book publication as a collection of outstanding articles, under the umbrella of ASCE Fluid Dynamics Committee. We are currently calling for outstanding papers for a special ASCE book publication entitled “Wind Engineering in Natural Hazards” by Guest Editors Aly Mousaad Aly and Elena Dragomirescu, and we would like to invite you to contribute with a 10-16 pages research article. In this publication, we solicit papers (original research and/or review articles) focused on recent advances in the area of Wind Engineering in Natural Hazards. Experimental, computational, multi-scale, and/or multi-physics investigations of problems in wind engineering of structures are welcomed. The topics may include, but are not limited to, wind engineering for civil engineering applications, windstorm, wave, and rain impact on the built environment, atmospheric boundary layer processes, boundary layer wind tunnel testing, synoptic and non-synoptic wind processes, testing protocols, and computational wind engineering.
If you are interested in contributing to this ASCE publication, please send an abstract including the title and author(s) name(s) of your paper to aly@LSU.edu. The abstract deadline is November 14, 2016, with a potential publication in January 2017. Detailed authors guidelines will be provided upon receiving the abstract.
